of president obama. he takes the vision on the road to las vegas. but within the last hour, white house press secretary jay carney confirmed the president would not unveil specific legislation. the plan unveiled today would be the first major immigration overhaul proposal in six years but one border state democrat congressman castro of texas say that is the devil is in the details. >> we've got to make sure that those measurements, when we have determined that we have secured the border, that those measurements are objective. otherwise you will have fights down the road where folks are saying, well, wait a minute. let's not move on to the second phase of the bill because we have not first completed the first phase. >> besides border security, there's guest workers and employer verification and a path to citizenship for the 11 million illegal immigrants in this country. let's bring in the political panel, "the washington post" nia-malika henderson and latino contributor, raul reyes and michael smerkonish. raul, if people doubt that elections have consequences, look at the issue of immigration

agenda that obama and his team have been waiting to put forth? >> i didn't find the inaugural address to be all that liberal. i really didn't. i thought it was more of the things he had said previously. but to answer your question, it fits that narrative. it's self validating for those on the right who want to be able to say, see, i told you so. because i have been hearing from them for years that it will be the second term. see, the second term is when the real manchurian candidate will emerge. it's lunacy. >> thank you for joining us and appreciate your service and great pleasure to talk with you and, colonel, thank you very much. >>> i coming up, more reaction of two female vets in congress. tulsi gabbard serving in combat and tammy duckworth elected to national office after being injured will join us. >> i did lose my legs in a bar fight. i'm pretty sure it was in combat. >> and tammy will join us. >>> also ahead, senator feinstein introduces a new assault weapons ban in front of a massive display of guns ten years after writing the original ban. what are the chances this one will

states that president obama won in the last two election cycles and our first read team writes, the republicans pushing the idea are all but acknowledging that their problems heading in to 2016 so significant they have to change the rules in order to win. in other words, they are throwing in the towel and trying to rig the system. let's talk more about this and bring in our political panel politico's anna palmer, strategist chris kofinis and msnbc contributor michael smerkonish. there's a lot to dive in this afternoon, big news this afternoon that priebus will stay as the head of rnc as they soul search what they want to be as a party moving forward, how to expand the tent doors there. take a listen to how haley barbour responded to the comments of governor jindal of the republicans being the party of stupid. >> point he made is xlakt exactly right. when you consider what two candidates, indiana and iowa, the comments they made were stupid comments, offensive comments and today's world when a candidate in one state says something, the negative effect of that can spill over to l

as local security in benghazi. clearly mistakes were made. let's be clear. barack obama was not responsible for the benghazi attack any more than george w. bush was responsible for the 9/11 attacks or ronald reagan was responsible for the attacks on our marine barracks in beirut that killed over 200 marines. whether it was called a terrorist attack or not, in the immediate aftermath as far as i'm concerned is irrelevant. we have to make sure it never happens again so that in the future our people are protected. that's what i want to get out of all of this. madam secretary, we commend you for accepting the recommendations and welcome your commitment to implement them by the time you leave the department. even before they committed conclusio conclusions, they moved to address shortcomings through increased security proposal. the vast majority for the proposal come from funds previously appropriated for lower priority programs. i hope congress will move without delay to glif the transfer authority it needs to start applying these changes. it is important to remember security is not a one off e

"the new york times" calls his speech evolved and unapologetic. earlier today, the first couple attended a prayer service at washington's national cathedral, a tradition dating back, of course, to the very first president and later today on to the last inaugural event, the staff ball, the reaction to the president's inaugural address that's the headline and the question of how he will make the vision a reality. with the republican party already critical of what they heard yesterday. >> we have always understood that when times change, so must we. the commitments we make to each other through medicare and medicaid and social security, these things do not sap our nation. they strengthen us. they do not make us a nation of takers. they free us to take the risks that make this country great. our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law. for if we are truly create
